To have this service right here in the Algona community has been a very important part to the industrial businesses as well as contractors who operate large mobile machines. But, industry alone has not kept the, Algona Machine Shop humming with business, because the farmer, too, is a major customer here. The seasonal welding of corn picker castings and rollers, sharpening of plow lathes, etc. are an important operation, too, at the Algona Machine Shop. Besides this, Hagg and Oakland do a mammoth amount of machine valve seat grinding and cylinder head planing. With all this specialty work, the two men have equipped their Shop with a vast assortment of machinery. A few r of the larger machines are: Hobert welder, three engine lathes, planer, milling machine, two' drill presses, three grinders, key-way cutter, power saw, cylinder boring machine, valve grinder, big press. ,;' .
